Abstract:   (45 Views)
Background: Pain is an experience often caused by tissue damage and is proportional to the severity of the injury. The role of underlying factors in the severity of pain such as pre-hospital and theoretical factors are expressed in some investigations. The current study aimed at assessing different parameters on pain severity in patients with trauma in Poorsina Hospital in Rasht, Iran.
Material & Method: The patients with trauma in Poorsina Hospital were assessed in terms of demographic and pre-hospital factors and mechanism and severity of trauma based on verbal rating scale.
Results: Linear regression analysis demonstrated that among various factors including age, gender, education, opium addiction, vehicle, ventilation, blood pressure, pulse rates, mechanism of trauma, and type of trauma, the highest severity of pain was pertaining to the type of trauma including multiple trauma and long bone fracture with the mean of 9.26 and 9.13, respectively. It also revealed that among these parameters, mechanism of trauma, type of trauma, transport time, type of vehicle, and pulse rates had significant role on the severity of pain.
Conclusion: The current study showed that increasing the quality of vehicle and decreasing the transport time and more investigation on hemodynamic factors such as pulse rates, blood pressure, use of analgesic agents, and immobilization of damaged tissue can diminish the severity of pain in patients with trauma.
